Star trail photo

One of the 400 plus shots taken to comprise the video I posted here a few days ago, the first ninety minutes worth were all taken before any clouds rolled in. Here are 137 photos merged using the excellent (and free) stacking program startrails. Each shot taken with a Nikon D90 with a NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 lens. Taken at f/1.8, ISO 200, 39 second exposures (one second in between each shot).

    Nice! For me it’s a beautiful shot. Reminds me that the world has so much mysteries left unseen. And in photos like this, I am confounded by the mystery but at the same falling in love with it.

    What a beautiful photo of our universe. One can be wondering: Does our planet earth is spinning – or maybe Earth is still but the rest of universe is rotating…

    This is a great photo! Not too many times someone can compose a photograph like this, even with software assistance. However, there is so much technology out there today that nothing seems unreachable. Photographers can create just about anything they want as far as photos go. Photography can be a very rewarding profession and/or hobby.
